The pitching help that the Texas Rangers hoped for, finally cashed in!

And, it couldn’t have come at a more vital time in the Rangers season.

Rangers’ starting pitcher Ryan Dempster was lights out against the Sox tonight! In 6 2/3 innings of work he sat down and struck out 6 Red Sox hitters and most importantly didn’t allow a single run to cross home plate.

Luckily for Dempster’s sake, the Rangers’ offense backed him up. The offense began to click in the top of the 6th inning when two separate singles by Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton brought home one run each.

The very next inning David Murphy adds to his season RBI totals by sending home Michael Young via the sac fly. Ian Kinsler was at it again, this inning bringing home another runner! At this point of the game, the Rangers were out to a 4-0 lead.

Red Sox pinch hitter/3B Will Middlebrooks didn’t like the fact their team was being shutout, so he decides to hit a three run homer to deep left. The score is now edged down to one run, 4-3.

Following two more RBI singles in the 8th and 9th inning by Nelson Cruz and Elvis Andrus, Rangers’ closer Joe Nathan shut down the Sox. The final score: 6-3.

Ryan Dempster picks up win #1 as a member of the Rangers and the American League.
